UCSB Women Stun Cal on Maddie Gibson’s Overtime Goal


Maddie Gibson picked off a Cal clearing pass and unleashed a one-time shot into the top left corner of the goal to give the UCSB women’s soccer team a stunning 3-2 overtime victory over the Bears on Sunday  at Edwards Stadium.

It was the first win at Cal by a non-conference opponent since 2014.

The Gauchos did it by rallying from a 2-0 deficit.

Sydney Magnin got UCSB on the board in the 60th minute off a Mallory Hromatko assists and Shaelan Murison equalized in the 81st from Jessica Wright.

Gibson’s golden goal came after a long throw-in by Murison into the penalty area was cleared out by Cal. Gibson alertly stepped up and blasted the ball past the everyone and into the net.

Cal struck first in the 12th minute as forward Emma Westin's attempted cross from the right wing angled toward goal and snuck in under the crossbar.

Cal doubled its lead eight minutes later as midfielder Luca Deza played in a cross from the right edge of the penalty area which took a deflection toward Abi Kim who headed home her third goal of the season.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
